Yankees sign LHP Sabathia to one-year deal


The New York Yankees re-signed left-hander CC Sabathia to a one-year contract, the team announced Wednesday.

"Back for one more!" the 18-year veteran tweeted.

The deal is worth $8 million, according to multiple reports.

The 38-year-old has spent the past 10 seasons with the Yankees. He went 9-7 with a 3.65 ERA in 29 starts in 2018.

Sabathia is 129-80 with a 3.74 ERA in 284 starts with New York. He went 59-23 in his first three seasons with the club but last won 15 games in 2012.

He joined the Yankees prior to the 2009 season when he signed a seven-year, $161 million deal as a free agent.

Sabathia is a six-time All-Star, making three appearances with the Yankees and also three with the Cleveland Indians between 2001-08. He also played part of 2008 with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Sabathia won the American League Cy Young Award in 2007 when he went 19-7 with a 3.21 ERA in 34 starts for the Indians.

Overall, he is 246-153 with a 3.70 ERA in 538 career starts over 18 seasons. Sabathia needs just 14 strikeouts to become the 17th member of the 3,000-strikeout club.
